Not just about recipes - just a book you'd love to read,
This review is from: The Clatter of Forks and Spoons: Honest, Happy Food (Hardcover)
I started buying cookbooks 15-20 years ago after I discovered the pleasure in good food writing that Nigel Slater's 'Real Cooking' brought. But I must admit that for the last few years I'd gone completely off buying cookbooks - finding them a bit 'all the same'.
I was bought Richard's book as a present this Christmas, and honestly, I have read the whole thing from cover to cover. It's as much an entertaining story of where his passion for food has come from as a recipe book. But as you read you can almost feel yourself soaking up the knowledge about food on every page at the same time as enjoying the story - superb.
